Cygnar - As Played by Bruce Campbell

 My Cygnar army has a theme; lots of guns.  So it was obvious that I would go with Caine as my primary 'caster.  In his background, he is portrayed as the most shady and independent warcaster in the kingdom, which suits me fine.  After a few games with the Lt. it was hard to use any other Cygnar 'caster, he is pretty solid.  I'm looking forward to picking up his epic version, just for gunfighter if nothing else.
 I would like to see a live-action Warmachine movie, and I think the talented Bruce would be an obvious choice for Caine.
Until next round, be well.

Cryx - Bodyguard

 Ogrun bokurs are pretty useful, especially for Cryx, since they bring to the table a couple things they lack in-faction.  These being shield guard and focus-free hitting power.  It is likely that this guy will be following Hellbringer around.
Until next round, be well.

Khador - Artillery

 The "dirty Khadorians" have a couple of these in the list.  So many winterguard...
Just a quick post, be well.

Cryx - Banes!!

 Here is another staple in most Cryx forces; banes.  This guy, Bane Lord Tartarus, is the character solo with the nasty little habit of bringing more thralls to the field as he kills things.  I often just shoot him from afar.
 And you can't really run Tartar(Sauce) without a mob of bane thralls.
Until next round, be well.

Space Wolves - Lord of Wolves

 Every so often I get the chance to paint up a Forge World mini, and it is definitely something to look forward to.  In this case it is a terminator Wolf Lord with some pretty awesome armour.
 This mini was converted by the client, with some weapon and head swaps and some added bitz.  I really like the fact that some action was conveyed in the pose (those older, static, terminators were boring).  Definitely looks like he is giving someone a good shield bash.
 I am really enjoying the "Emperor's Executioners".  It is a chapter packed with details which make each marine an individual with each marine's armour telling some of the warrior's story (and the Norse-feel helps too).
Until next round, be well.

Menoth - Now With Reach

 This guy obviously answered one of those emails and got his sword extended.  I hear it only took some plasticard and putty.
 This sculpt was interesting.  Lots of details and such, but with a very static pose.  Also, compared to the other character heavy 'jacks (and beasts) of his age, he is kind of tiny.
 (You know what this blog need?  More posts....)
Until next round, be well.

Menoth - Crazy People

 Over on the Menoth front, some zealots were added to the force.  If/when I play Menites, this unit is on the list.  the unit is small (well, smaller than a ten man unit) and has lots of opportunity to paint flowing robes.  Painting robes like these in white posed a bit of a challenge, I had to make multiple thin coats to keep it solid and reduce brush strokes.
 The icon bearer is one of my favourite models in the Menoth range, which made me happy that I had the opportunity to paint one up. 
Until next round, be well.

Khador - A Little Bit of Necromancy

 Here is another model for the Northern Army; Alexia.  Of all the older Privateer sculpts, this one is one of my favourites. 
 One of the most fun parts was her sword, which was an attempt at a glowing black blade.  It wasn't a complete success, but I am happy with it.
 I also gave her a flash of red so she would have some tie-in with the rest of the army, otherwise I took the opportunity to use some colours I don't get to use very often (which is my favourite thing about mercs).
Until next round, stay frosty...

Cephalyx - The Psychic Spider-Squid Army Begins (Slowly)

 A while ago, I attended a Steamroller and promptly lost every game.  The big prize, a pre-release cephalyx army bundle, was to be raffled off with extra tickets going to the winners.  My chances were low, and to my complete surprise, my ticket was drawn!!
 Now, months later, I have a painted cephalyx to post; the agitator!!
 As you can see, I am going with a dark purple for the robes. The other colours I tried to keep somewhat muted, being used to provide contrast mostly.  The most fun part was the bases, I used some zombie bits and water fx (the paste stuff) and a couple of brushloads of varnish after the red paint.  The whole army will be wading through pools of gore, yummy.
Until next time, be well.

Trolls - Trolljack Ninja

 Tagging along with the Ironmonger is his trusty mule.  A fairly decent match for the troll 'marshal, the mule can benefit from his drive and get to shoot and assault.  I just got to figure a way to make him Def troll...
 The mace needed to be trollfied, so I added the wheels from an old Blood Bowl deathroller(?).  I also had to use the pin to straighten out the handle a bit more.  Ninja also got a tuffalo shield, Raluk's keg, and ogre bellyplate.
 This is the first of two trolljacks, the second one should be posted soon...
Until next round, be well.
